We tend to assume that successful actors have it all figured out, as if their hard-earned and seemingly endless possibilites come with all the answers in hand, but we gained a different perspective while chatting with Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Heroes) in New York about his character, John Smith, in the new film Hitman: Agent 47.

Opening up on how his theatre experience prepared him for his role as the antagonist in the re-booted film series, his reasoning behind not playing the video game that inspired the film, and a humble recognition that he is not immune to those puzzles we often experience in life, we ponder for a bit with the contemplative actor in the video below.


Directed by Aleksander Bach, Hitman: Agent 47 releases in the UK August 28th, and in the US August 21st.
